Best Late-Night Food Spots in New York City

January 22 2024

There is nothing better than a late-night snack – especially if you’ve been making the most of New York’s nightlife. From pizza to tacos, New York’s late-night food scene is one of the best in the world.

The Big Apple completely comes to life after dark and there are endless places to find a snack. But where are the best spots in the city?

It goes without saying that a trip to New York isn’t complete without at least one slice of NY-style pizza. While there are pizza spots all over Manhattan, some offer a much better experience than others. If you’re looking for some of the best pizza slices in the city, look no further than Joe’s Pizza in Greenwich Village.

NYC is one of the most diverse cities in the world, and despite being thousands of miles from the Middle East – that doesn’t mean you can’t find delicious, and authentic falafel in New York. Mamoun’s Falafel in the East Village is the perfect treat on a late night in the city – and if you’re not a falafel fan, the shawarma is also highly recommended.

Out and about near Times Square? Don’t miss Sake Bar Hagi for some great, late-night Japanese treats – and one of the best selections of sake in New York. If you’re looking for a 24-hour diner in the city, Veselka in the East Village is a Ukrainian diner serving up the best pierogis in town.

Finally, what is a night out without tacos to end with? New York, despite being on the opposite end of the country to Mexico, has some of the best Mexican food in the states. Los Tacos No.1 is exactly that – some of the best tacos on the East Coast. With plenty of locations across the city, you’re never too far away to grab a quick bite.

Visiting New York in the coming months? The Hotel Beacon is located in the heart of the action and a short walk away from some of the city’s best attractions.
